I like Hofbrau's Oktoberfest better than this Beck's one.

I've been hunting for Hoffbrau's Oktoberfest, thus far I haven't found it.

It is one missing this year, Ive had:

Weihenstephaner
Spaten
Paulaner
Ayinger
Aecht Schlenkerla
Warsteiner
Becks
Rogue
Bells
Hooker
Victory
Lienenkugels
Sam Adams
Avery perhaps? (a 22 oz, I forget who, too strong and too hoppy)

Lowenbrau makes an Oktoberfest that I want to find, thus far I've been unsuccessful.

Still looking for Pete's version too. I've always been a fan of Pete's Octoberfest.

Strong, hoppy, and a 22oz sounds very much like Avery. It's a good description for most of their beers.

I bought Dogfish Head's 90 Minute IPA yesterday. Wow, that's a good beer, and I don't generally like IPAs. There's a strong hop presence, but it's counteracted really well by the malt flavor you get up-front. It's a little on the sweet side and really expensive ($13.11 after tax/deposit for a four-pack) but I don't know if it's possible to do an IPA any better than that.

Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel



This German dark wheat beer is dark brown and cloudy in color. It has a good head and has a good amount of lacing. It has a soft smell of fruit and spice. It's a medium-bodied beer with medium carbonation. It has a good smooth taste. There is a very light hint of banana and clove. It also has a bit of a yeasty taste. Overall, I like the style of this beer and it tastes good. I would reccomend this one.

Grade: 7.3

Samuel Smith's Organic Lager




Brewer: Samuel Smith (Old Brewery) (Tadcaster, England)
Style: Pale Lager

My Review:
Pours a light, clear, gold color, with a white head. Scent was light, but was what I originally thought was skunky. After it warmed up a little I realized it was just the hops, but they didn't smell good. Flavor was very watery, with a light skunk taste, and a really bad bitter flavor at the end. Carbonation was good, and there was some lacing.

I bought it thinking I was getting a traditional British lager. What I got was a fizzy yellow, watery beer. There was very little flavor, and it was bad when it was there. A bitter/skunk flavor is the best I can explain it, but it doesn't seem like it was actually skunky from sitting there. I really tried to like it, but couldn't. If this is what organic tastes like, give me steroids, hormones, pesticides, and a fertilizer that ends in nitrate.


My Score: 2.0

I just brewed my first batch of beer, a pretty basic Nut Brown Ale.

I like a good dark beer, and got myself a sixer today of St. Pauli Girl Special Dark, and very yum. Great dark beer taste that lives up to the Pauli Girl name.

I'm not really a big fan of St. Pauli dark. It's pretty bitter and thin. It could really use some malts in it.

Congrats! It's a great thing to get into.


Lets get some details here. Extract or all-grain? Bottle or keg? What were you drinking while brewing? And most important, did you have fun doing it?

It isn't as heavy as NewCastle, but I really disagree about it being bitter, extremely smooth.

We made about 5 batches when I was in college, netted about 51-52 bottles per batch. Our best by far was a Bavarian Hefe Weisen.

Ok so I just turned 21 last week, which gives me the license to legally talk about beer in this thread, as well as to get suggestions on what to try since its far easier to get beer now.

Anyways my rankings on what I've tried...

Favorites:

Landshark
Rolling Rock

Good:

Heineken
Amstel

Like:

Bud Light Golden Wheat
Corona
Coors Original
Blue Moon

Average:

Bud Light
Coors Light
Miller Light

Bad:

Natty/Beast/Keystone
Bud Light Lime

Despise:

Guiness

There's probably more I've had but can't think of. Anyways, judging by my tendencies, anyone have a few suggestions for my next beer run.

PS: Keep in mind I'm in college, so while I wanna drink something good, I don't want anything too outrageously priced.
